Networking Committee


    The Networking Committee strives to provide opportunities for members to socialize, connect, and engage with each other. This committee is responsible for organizing, planning, and holding the following ISPE-CaSA events, either as a stand-alone committee or in conjunction with other committees:

    Therapeutic Thursdaysheld monthly on the last Thursday of the month held at local restaurants, pubs, breweries, and/or wineries in the region, rotating locations and sponsors.   Therapeutic Thursdays are held outside the Raleigh-Durham/RTP area effective 2019.     Occasionally, an event may be held in conjunction with another chapter activity, such as one held by the Young Professionals or Education Committees.

    Fall Networking Event - an annual celebration of the previous year and the upcoming year, introduction of all ISPE-CaSA committees, and other achievements of the Chapter, and usually held in October with sponsorship support.

    Winter Networking Event – a fun night of entertainment and networking in a formal dress environment. An accomplished Keynote Speaker will address the group.

    Charity Events - events held in conjunction with other events (e.g., Technology Conference, Golf Tournament, Education Events) wherein the Chapter accepts donations of money and prizes. This may be held alone or in conjunction with another event, at a breakfast or evening reception, with rotating locations. 

    The 26th Annual ISPE-CaSA Golf Tournament set a fundraising record for the Jane Brown Scholarship program, raising a grand total of $14,593.73. Thanks to our Jane Brown Scholarship golf tournament sponsors Holloway America, Southern Industrial Constructors, Syska Hennessy Group. And a special thanks to Clayco for their additional generous donation to our scholarship fund. The Jane Brown Scholarship was established in 2015 to encourage students seeking a career in the life sciences industry. The Jane Brown Scholarships are awarded to eligible CaSA Student Chapter members at the annual Life Sciences Technology Conference.

    Golf Tournament - usually held on a Monday in May at the Prestonwood Country Club in Cary, NC, the golf tournament is a fun, friendly, social and athletic competition among members and is supported by sponsorships and golf fees and includes a charity donation aspect.
